It's got a real Convair flavor to it.

Concur with my esteemed colleagues, this one's fantastic!

My mom would applaud your color choice here eric.

Well done!

Yes,   I see some Convair influence.

Another fine combo, Convair vibes or not.

thanx a lot !

I prefer red/yellow/blue, to concentrate just on the shape of the aircraft,
but if you would like to make it in more "real-worl" markings why not ?  ;)
1/144 would be possible too I guess, and less problematic for storage  ;D

Wow! That looks fantastic!  :-*

This looks like a design from the time when airliners weren't just designed for maximum fuel efficiency. Could really see this an a 1970's airline livery.  :smiley:
More of this, please! Hmmm. B-58 wings on an airliner fuselage?
Cheers,

The B-One/B707-wing and the B707/B-One wing are both excellent combinations.

Beautiful!!  I could see that easily as an aircraft for the fast transportation of urgent cargo.  I know you favor the primary colors, but that would have looked so right in "FedEx purple".

I certainly agree that some liveries would fit well, like DHL (in yellow ! ) :
I don't do decals myself but I would welcome someone trying it out.
BTW it would be do-able in 1/144, for easier storage   ;)

piston engined Su-22, red : hybrid aircraft/animals e.a.
« Reply #1789 on: February 03, 2020, 03:19:37 AM »

it was a comment about my single-engine Do338 that got me there :
eventually the fromt engine of the 1/48 Dornier was too large for the nose of the 1/72 Su-22,
so I found an alternative in a CL215 engine ; the other one will find a use sometime ...

Two more.... !
Blue jet is inspiring, like build one in 1/72.  Flows and works surprisingly well.
2nd career for CL215 engine.  Plenty power for speedy ground tests like checking brakes.....

Piston-powered Su-22 looks like quite the priority passenger transport, particularly into rough fields.
